Pride and prejudice

Have you ever read anything by Jane Austen?

On 28th January 1813, the first edition of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice was published in London.

It’s one of my favourite books, and today, 200 years later, the book remains among the most widely read and best beloved in English literature.

I recommend you the book and the film. There are several films adaptations. This is the latest:

‘The moment I first met you, I noticed your pride, your sense of superiority, and your selfish disdain for the feelings of others. You are the last man in the world whom I could ever be persuaded to marry,’ said Elizabeth Bennet.

And so Elizabeth rejects the proud Mr Darcy. Can nothing overcome her prejudice against him? And what of the other Bennet girls – their fortunes, and misfortunes, in the business of getting husbands?
